There’s all kinds of Atlus news today, first Persona 4, now this. Summon Night: Twin Age is an action RPG for the DS that fully stylus controlled. The email goes on to detail that the stylus controls are “precise controls (no excessive line drawing to attack or squiggles in the corner of the screen to roll, folks)”, which is good but I’m not a huge fan of touch controls in games. I mean, for menus it’s one thing, but to use it solely, I don’t know. I couldn’t get into Phantom Hourglass because of the touch controls, it just wasn’t fun for me. Just because the DS has a touch screen doesn’t mean you need to make things more difficult and use them as the sole movement mechanism just to prove that you can do it.
Summon Night: Twin Age does look pretty cool though, reminds me of like Secret of Mana or something, though I never played the first so I have no idea what it will be like.
Get ready to experience a fully-stylus driven action RPG with precise controls (no excessive line drawing to attack or squiggles in the corner of the screen to roll, folks)!
Summon Night: Twin Age is headed to a Nintendo DS near you (hopefully yours) on May 20th! Two playable characters get to experience the story from different perspectives, which means seeing new things the second time through. Trade items with a friend via local wireless. Oh, and the game looks gorgeous, too. How dare you doubt me! Perhaps the trailer below is the proof you need:
